Player Outlook
Livan Soto changed organizations twice before the start of the 2024 season, as he was claimed off waivers by the Orioles at the start of February only to be designated for assignment and reclaimed by the Angels a few weeks later. The 23-year-old infielder has performed admirably when given a chance at the highest level with a career .945 OPS, but he's only been able to receive 71 plate appearances over the last two years. There's very little power in his left-handed bat, and he's not considered a stolen-base threat to help compensate. Soto will compete for a utility spot this spring, but it'd be a major upset if he provided any sort of fantasy fireworks if he does make the roster.

  • Orioles' Livan Soto: DFA'd by O's

    The Orioles designated Soto for assignment Tuesday. Soto has now been designated for assignment four times since the beginning of February -- twice by both the Orioles and Angels. He'll go through the waiver process and could perhaps draw interest from the Halos again, or another organization may be willing to take a chance on the 23-year-old infielder.

  • Orioles' Livan Soto: Back in Baltimore

    The Orioles claimed Soto off waivers from the Angels on Thursday and optioned him to Triple-A Norfolk. Since early February, Soto has gone from the Angels to the Orioles, back to the Angels and then back to the Orioles via the waiver process. Soto has managed a .375/.414/.531 batting line in 71 career plate appearances, but his .244/.339/.331 line from the minors is a better representation of his talent level. The 23-year-old will provide organizational infield depth for Baltimore.

  • Angels' Livan Soto: DFA'd by Angels

    The Angels designated Soto for assignment Monday. Soto was claimed off waivers by the Angels on Feb. 18 after being DFA'd by the Orioles two days prior. He was then optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake towards the end of spring training, where he has slashed .214/.324/.286 with two doubles, three RBI and one stolen base over 35 plate appearances. Should Soto clear waivers, he'll look to catch onto another organization in need of a left-handed bat and infield depth.

  • Angels' Livan Soto: Returns to Halos

    Soto was claimed off waivers by the Angels on Sunday. The 23-year-old was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Friday and will now return to the Angels, who also designated him for assignment in early February. Soto is now back on the Halos' 40-man roster and will provide middle-infield depth.

  • Orioles' Livan Soto: DFA'd by Baltimore

    Soto was designated for assignment by Baltimore on Friday. Soto was claimed off waivers from the Angels last week but didn't stick on the Orioles' 40-man roster for long. The 23-year-old appeared in four big-league games last season and had a .700 OPS over 477 plate appearances at Triple-A.

  • Angels' Livan Soto: Departs 40-man roster

    Soto was designated for assignment by the Angels on Saturday, Taylor Blake Ward of The Sporting Tribune reports. Soto has managed a .946 OPS over 71 plate appearances at the major-league level, but a .670 OPS in the minors is closer to his real ability. The 23-year-old offers a solid glove at multiple infield positions, so it's possible he'll draw some interest on waivers.

  • Angels' Livan Soto: Getting call-up Monday

    The Angels plan to call up Soto from Double-A Rocket City on Monday, Daniel Alvarez-Montes of reports. Soto's promotion may come as a bit of a surprise just looking at the numbers, as the 22-year-old was demoted to Double-A after hitting just .157 with Triple-A Salt Lake and he's posted just a .566 OPS since joining Rocket City. However, since he's on the 40-man roster and has the ability to play a few different infield positions, the Angels may view him as an ideal utility option while Anthony Rendon tends to a groin injury. Rendon is expected to be placed on the 10-day injured list Monday in a corresponding move.

  • Angels' Livan Soto: Demoted to Double-A

    The Angels moved Soto from Triple-A Salt Lake to Double-A Rocket City on Tuesday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports. The 22-year-old infielder looked to be something special during the brief time he spent in the majors last season, slashing .400/.414/.582 through 59 plate appearances. However, a slow start in Triple-A (.554 OPS) through 13 games has derailed any potential plans for Soto to rejoin the Angels anytime soon. If he's able to get things going in Double-A, there's a good chance he might get the call to return to Salt Lake relatively quickly.

  • Angels' Livan Soto: Productive from leadoff spot

    Soto went 2-for-5 with a run scored in Monday's extra-inning loss to the Athletics. The 22-year-old has exploded onto the scene for the Angels over the last few weeks, and he kept it going with a strong game batting out of the leadoff spot Monday. Soto's multi-hit effort was his eighth over his last 10 games, during which he is 18-for-36. Soto will likely come back to earth next season, as he sports an unsustainable BABIP north of .500, but he will be worth keeping an eye on to see if he earns regular playing time.

  • Angels' Livan Soto: Keeps hitting in win

    Soto went 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 8-3 win over the Rangers. Soto had a hot finish to September, and it's carried over to October with three-hit efforts in each of his last two games. He's also knocked in at least one run in five of his last seven contests. The shortstop now sports a .413 batting average with a home run, five doubles, nine RBI, seven runs scored and a stolen base through his first 50 plate appearances in the majors.

  • Angels' Livan Soto: Piling up hits

    Soto went 2-for-4 with a triple and an RBI in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Athletics. The 22-year-old rookie has turned in four consecutive two-hit games to lift his batting average up to .379 through his first 32 big-league plate appearances. A .500 BABIP has had a major role in propping up Soto's batting average, and his 28.1 percent strikeout rate is another data point that suggests some regression could be in the forecast. Even if that's the case, Soto should at least continue to enjoy a full-time role in the Los Angeles infield while David Fletcher (hand) remains on the injured list.

  • Angels' Livan Soto: Homers in first start

    Soto went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and an additional run scored in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Mariners. Soto entered Saturday's game off the bench and went 0-for-1 before drawing the start at shortstop Sunday. He was aboard on a single in the third inning for his first big-league hit, then scored on a Luis Rengifo homer. In the seventh, Soto went yard himself to pad the Angels' lead. The 22-year-old isn't a particularly notable prospect, but he slashed .281/.379/.362 across 119 games with Double-A Rocket City this year. He should have a chance to compete with Michael Stefanic and Rengifo for playing time in the middle infield over the last couple of weeks of the season.

  • Angels' Livan Soto: Contract selected by Angels

    Soto's contract was selected from Double-A Rocket City on Saturday. Soto was productive at Rocket City to begin the season, hitting .281 with six home runs, 69 runs, 56 RBI and 18 stolen bases. He'll provide additional infield depth for the Angels after David Fletcher (hand) was placed on the 10-day injured list. Soto isn't starting Saturday against the Mariners but should be available off the bench.
